Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused security agencies of threatening to murder him.

Wike made the claim on Thursday, December 1, while speaking in the Gokhana Local Government Area of the state.

“For me, they are threatening that I will be the first governor they will assassinate,” he said according to Vanguard.

“They are threatening that they will show me that they are security agencies. But, I will always protect the interest of Rivers  State, no matter  the threat.

“INEC  has released a fake list of ad-hoc staff for the rerun elections before the conclusion  of their mandatory training. Majority of those on the list are known APC Ward Chairmen and Ward Secretaries who are mainly unemployed, but listed by INEC as staff of the University of Port Harcourt.

“They think that my love for peace is a sign of weakness. But I want to declare that enough is enough. We are supposed to be under an era of change, but the love for fraud by INEC and Police is unprecedented.

“Anyone whose son or daughter is on that fraudulent INEC list should tell him/her to stay away on election day. All these desperate actions are geared towards the plot to rig in favour of a particular candidate. But that candidate will not win. The people of Rivers South-East senatorial district must be allowed  to vote persons of their   choice,” he added.
